"principles of naturopathic medicine: 1. the healing power of nature (vis medicatrix naturae): the body has an inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health. The healing process is ordered and intelligent; nature heals through the body’s vital life force. It is the role of the naturopathic physician to facilitate this natural process [...] 3. first do no harm (primum non nocere). Illness is a purposeful process of the organism. The process of healing can cause the manifestation of symptoms, which are an expression of the body’s vital force attempting to heal itself [...] the natural life force of the individual must be supported to facilitate the healing process";

"according to TCM, energy (or qi) moves through the body along 14 main pathways, called meridians. Each meridian corresponds to a different organ system and emotion. It is believed that imbalances in qi are the root of disease. When the flow of qi along one or several of the meridians is obstructed, an imbalance occurs in the rest of the body and the result may be disease or injury. By stimulating key points in the body, acupuncture seeks to restore balance to the normal energy flow and, consequently, to relieve pain or treat disease. Disease doesn’t exist where qi flows smoothly and evenly";

"acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force (sometimes known as qi or chi) to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same points, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses the gentle, but firm pressure of hands and feet";

"reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by 'laying on hands' and is based on the idea that an unseen 'life force energy' flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's 'life force energy' is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy";

"practicing tai chi supports a healthy balance of yin and yang, thereby aiding the flow of qi, and alleviating the body of unwanted illness or disease. Tai chi incorporates the Chinese concepts of yin-yang and qi. In traditional Chinese medicine, the vital energy or life force proposed to regulate a person's spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical health, qi, is influenced by the opposing forces of yin and yang, and the balance between the two";

All homeopathic medicines are ‘potentized’, i.e., diluted and succussed [spiritized]. This method of preparation imparts considerable energy to each substance. ‘Unitary’ homeopathy [classical homeo.; Hahnemannian / Kentian] means that only one remedy is given at a time because only one remedy can correspond perfectly to the total picture of the patient. A prescription that does not aim for this totality is not homeopathic”;

"with naturopathic medicine, various natural modalities are utilized including clinical nutrition, traditional Chinese medicine, botanical medicine and homeopathic medicine [...] homeopathic medicine is also helpful in managing OA pain as it stimulates the body’s vital force to promote self-healing. Potencies that are most effective are 200CH or MK [...] traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) can help balance qi (energy flow) to reduce inflammation and pain. This includes acupuncture, cupping and dietary recommendations [...] if you'd like to have more information on naturopathic medicine, please visit www.vitalforcenaturopathic.ca";

As there is order to the universe based on energy, so must our internal order or vital force energy be in balance. When it is not, disease results and symptoms develop. Symptoms of disease are an outer expression of our inner disrupted vital force";

"the Bowen technique very strongly affects the chakras. The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel of light'. Vertically, along the center of the body are found seven main energy centers called chakras. Each chakra is connected to a part of the physical body and transmits and receives life force / energy / chi / prana. When we are in a state of ill health, the chakras may become distorted, out of alignment or even stagnant. When this happens, life force cannot flow in and out freely and the physical body suffers. With training and intuition the chakras can be assessed before and after treatments. From these assessments it has become clear that the chakras are positively affected after Bowen treatments, without the practitioner’s conscious or intentional manipulation to this system";
